Walking naked through a supermarket | Main | Warning! This could be shocking.

Shouting quietly

If walking through the supermarket naked could make you feel uncomfortable, then so too does expressing your emotions. Though there is nothing fundamentally wrong with walking through said retail outlet in the chuff, socially it is wont to be frowned upon. Just as there is nothing wrong with painting pictures of any damn thing you like, there are those whose sensibilities are such that they can be offended.

One of the driving forces of the creative arts is the need on the part of the artist, writer, musician, to communicate their feelings, and in so doing assuage their own frustrations or enlighten those around them.

Expressing emotions is a personal business, and though, as I mentioned in the previous post, it is important to be seen and heard, I feel it is sometimes necessary to shout quietly.

But shouting quietly is getting me nowhere. So I need to make a bit more noise.
